27 years old, USCF rating 1726. Personal best around 2100 blitz on ICC and Playchess. Around 1800 on FICS (handle: dumbgai). Inactive in OTB competition since 2011.

Beaten a handful of IMs online (mostly through flagging).

If anything I write on these pages offends you, feel free to hand me a beating on FICS.

My opening repertoire: 1. e4 as white, 1. e4 e5 and 1. d4 d5 as black.

Favorite players: Kramnik, Morozevich, Hou Yifan, Wei Yi, and of course Carlsen. Least favorite: anyone who acts like a classless jerk, meaning Topalov, Mamedyarov, and Nakamura. Also, Leko, who really should be a checkers (or tic-tac-toe) player.

dumbgai: <If I was Caruana, I wouldn't participate in the Grand Prix cycle at all. What's the point of shedding rating points in a shambolically run cycle of FIDE tournaments, played in questionable venues for a lower prize fund when he can play in exclusive top tournaments with high ...

dumbgai: The appropriate thing to do if your opponent REALLY refuses to resign is to under-promote 4 knights. I don't mind when my opponents drag games out, it just lets me enjoy my winning position for longer.

dumbgai: White didn't appear to get sufficient compensation for the pawn sacrifice after 23. d4. After the queens are exchanged, black is still a pawn up and can seemingly make a draw whenever she wants. 37. b3! is a key move, trapping the black rook and allowing the white bishop to go to ...

dumbgai: The fact that these issues are even discussed says enough about the country. In any civilized place in the world, women are not jailed for adultery.

dumbgai: A real blunderfest. At first white is up a pawn, then loses it and ends up down a piece for two pawns in the endgame, then ends up winning anyways.

dumbgai: Humpy might want to start avoiding rook endgames when facing Hou: Koneru vs Yifan Hou, 2011 Yifan Hou vs Koneru, 2013 Yifan Hou vs Koneru, 2011 Yifan Hou vs Koneru, 2008

dumbgai: <I can't believe the stupid chess establishment never gave JP a crack at the world championship.> That's silly. You don't just hand someone a world championship match, they have to qualify (well, I guess the case of Kramnik was debatable).
   Aug-14-14 Chess Olympiad (2014) (replies)
dumbgai: Every Olympiad, there seems to be a big tie near the top and the silver and bronze medals are determined by tiebreaks. While this might seem a bit unfair, it also indicates that the strong teams are pretty evenly matched, which makes the entire competition exciting to follow.

dumbgai: 9.5/11 (+8 =3 -0) with a 2912 performance rating at the Olympiad, individual gold medal on board 3, team gold medal, and gaining 32 rating points to reach 2700. All around, an amazing performance in every way.
